Pickles are an essential in Japanese cuisine. They are used in a variety of ways, such as to add seasoning to a dish, to aid digestion, and as a palette cleanser between dishes; this is the most common use of pickled ginger - you will often see if served up at sushi restaurants, where you should eat a small piece between each different type of sushi. This is so you experience the full flavour of each fish, without the previous one tainting the flavour.
We have a huge range of ready made pickles at SushiSushi, including ginger, cucumber, radish and ume, which are delicious as a simple dish on their own or served with a bowl of rice. They are always handy to keep in the cupboard. If you'd like to try your hand at making your own, here's a simple recipe!
